Output of the code under different configurations Isn't that weird that the output has varied in Debug and Release modes ? Well, … Continue reading Evil Code #006 : Build Configurations

Evil Code 0002 Optional Parameter Vs Method Overloading

Again one of those things which looks so simple, but could drive one mad during debugging. Much before Optional Parameters came in, C# developers used to depend on Method Overloading for mimicking Optional Parameters. Consider a scenario where both exists, what would be the output ? The output would be : The reason behind this … Continue reading Evil Code 0002 Optional Parameter Vs Method Overloading
